Today’s mobile technologies and the use of social networks are pervasive, however, studies on mobile social

networks in a collaborative setting at school are still scant. In this research-in-progress paper, we propose a

research framework which explores how two important aspects of social networks including network

Eigenvector centrality and network reciprocation influence user enjoyment and their knowledge self-efficacy,

which are likely to affect their attitude towards using mobile technologies to connect with their peers, and

further impact their academic performance in a collaborative task setting. A brief theoretical background and

hypothesis development are presented. A study plan is then described at the end.
